We were going to Key West for a friends wedding, and initial searches found the cheapest hotel lodging to be $200-300 PER NIGHT. I went onto my new favorite booking website (Bookit.com), and found The Beach Villas for only $140 night - MUCH better!
The guesthouse is attached to the main house by a door in the bedroom, which of course we kept locked. We loved the "beachy" feel of the place - you enter from a private door onto the wooden deck, and enter the room through French doors into the living room. Bedroom/kitchenette (same space) to the left; bathroom to the right. On the deck is a jacuzzi, BBQ grill, and cafe table & chairs so you can sit out and enjoy the warm Key West days and nights.
VERY close to Smathers Beach (one block away), and very close drive to downtown Key West (the island is not that big anyway). Perfect location in my opinion - quiet, peaceful, and close to the action when you want it.
Unique Quality: Key pickup & drop off is at the Fury Ticket Booth at the corner of Front Street at Duval Street, from 9am - 9pm.
There is no "maid" service, but the guest house was very comfortable and we had everything we needed right there. We loved the "homey" feel of the place, and would stay there again in a heartbeat!
